New Canaan estate and 'party barn' back on the market with $11.2M price cut

Drive up to the front of the home on 364 Laurel Road in New Canaan and it can pass for any Fairfield County estate. Step inside one of its two structures, and the interior shows otherwise. 

Currently listed for $3.75 million, the eight-bedroom home has 9,200 square feet of living space, and on its over 6 acres of land are a guest house and a 15,000-square-foot “award-winning party [and] sports barn indulging almost every hobby or aspiration.”

This is not the first time the home has been on the market. According to Realtor.com, the home last sold in 2014 and according to vice president of sales for Higgins Group Susan Leone, the home has not sold since despite being listed a few times. The property was listed in 2015 for $15 million, according to Realtor.com, and was relisted four years later for $4.9 million. 

Back on the market after another price drop, Leone said the “unique” home and its party barn have much to offer a prospective buyer. 

“[It’s] the largest privately-owned one of its kind in the state,” she said in an email of the party barn. “It’s a multi-generational playground.”

The party barn, which won a Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Connecticut award in 2005 for best accessory building, contains a professional indoor basketball court with its own regulation scoreboard, according to the listing, as well as a raised stage with a velvet curtain and “professional theatrical lighting [and] sound systems.”

Additionally, the listing notes the barn also houses a bowling lane and golf simulation room, as well as a ballet studio, game room and a 30-seat home theater. There’s also a full-service bar, according to the listing, as well as a gourmet kitchen and large dining space. 

The rest of the property features a heated Gunite pool and spa, the listing notes, as well a separate kids’ pool and a lawn with a putting green.
